My Sunday Blessings

Happy Sunday all you Happy Bunnies!!

My Happy List:
1. My Stamping Studio! It's nearly finished and yesterday I was finally able to "get inky"! I need to hang up my ribbon racks and pretties, but it's looking really good. Get ready for lots of stamping posts, lol!!!!

2. Popcorn! Rachel's husband Chris used to make me a HUGE bowl of popcorn every week for Survivor or Lost (depending on what was on) with their miracle popper. Just the best popcorn evah!!!! So when she told me they bought a new one, I said, "Great! Now you can give me your old one!!!". I'm such a giving person, lol! But that's just what they did and now I get to have the bestest popcorn evah - anytime I want it!!

3. Minnie! She sat on my lap for about 30 minutes, just contentedly purring and letting me pet her. She's so soft and pretty!!! I wish she would become an inside cat!

4. Freshly changed beds! I don't much care for the hassle of changing sheets (or doing all the extra laundry!), but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a newly made up bed! It's just so crisp and perfect!! It makes me want to just dive back in it and read all day, lol!

5. My coffee! It may be full of sugar and fat, but it tastes great and I don't care!!!

6. My oldest daughter Alex! Who all but promised me she'd be home for Christmas!!! After two without her, she better!!! And this month too!! I miss my baby!!!

7. My iHome! I love my lovely classical music playing once again!!!

8. Italian potato chips! Made with olive oil. They're the bomb, and you should be very, very jealous of me. *smile*

9. A beautiful, almost unpacked home! We're getting there!!! NO MORE BOXES!! Just some organizing and picture hanging left! Yay! And we don't have to worry about the rent, the exchange rate, electricity, gas, water, trash, etc, etc, etc! The Army just takes our allowance (no, it's not 'free'!!), and we don't have to give it another thought! So I can have a long, hot shower and keep my house as warm or cool as I want to!!!! Central air in Italy is just sooooo loverly!

10. Forgiving Bloggy Friends! I had over 300 emails and comments this past week and I'm only today getting around to answering all of you and visiting your blogs. The temptation to just "delete" everything and start fresh was nearly overwhelming, but that didn't seem very nice. So I'm getting there, slowly but surely!!! And I still have to craft today too, so you know, I'll get there!

Not so Happy List:
1. Stupid eBay seller who has my almost $400 but I still haven't received my Copic markers!!!!! This is a HUGE splurge for me and I've wanted them for over a year. PayPal claim filed and hopefully he hasn't just disappeared. Sadly, I'm not the only one left hanging. Jerk!!

2. Stupid movers who either stole or broke or SOMETHING, my Italian themed Scentsy burner. I can replace it but that's not the point. We'll be filing our extensive claim report this week. Ain't moving grand??? Luckily I have a fantastic Scentsy girl and I know she'll hook me up pronto!

So what's on your Happy List???

Mighty M said...

I can't believe you haven't gotten those markers - what a jerk that guy must be! Grrrr!!!

Annie said...

And so sorry to hear about the copies not arriving yet... I hope they'll get to you this week :)


Diane said...

Yikes! Sorry about that mean ole ebay person. I hope you get them or at least get your money back.
Nothing like clean sheets which reminds me that mine need washing!

blueviolet said...

I love freshly changed beds too. Oh man, that feels good! That totally stinks about losing some of your stuff from moving!

Cassy Lu said...

I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!!! I'm going to be on here all the time now that I have it! Thanks for the addy, even though you are right next door it's always nice to see what's in others heads lol Can't wait to see that stamp room and some of the stuff you have done! Here's my blog it's nothing like yours but I only started it for family to see what life is like here. See you tomorrow :)

Sounds like things are moving along beautifully! What an exciting time for you!

Mimi said...

On my happy list was all the great comments from my friend Jeannie that I woke up to this morning!


AliceKay said...

Loved your happy list. You know what? You sound happy. :)

Stupid eBay seller is right. I hope you receive your Copic markers soon or else fully reimbursed for what you paid for them. And the person who "stole" or "broke" your Italian Scentsy burner should fess up. *hugs*

My happy list consists of days when I feel good and I'm able to bring a smile to someone's face. I hope you're smiling right now. :)

Deanna said...

That is so sad that you got taken on ebay. I hope it is resolved and you get your money back.

I Love LOVE love clean crisp sheets too. I also loved sleep in late this morning.

Hope Alex definitely makes it home for Christmas.

Christina said...

Glad to hear its almost done and you will get back to being normal again....wait was there ever such a thing?

Intense Guy said...
